Or Music, Entertainment. Whatever you preference, Court Square Theater stays busy planning for and being the host site for theater and live music. It's a fairly new establishment who is working hard to provide very entertaining performances for a variety of tastes. And I've been there for at least a dozen performances.

They are working on raising funds for new seats. Some are fine, but many are broken. The events that they run here, from indie films, music events, and live theatre are wonderful. One of the reasons Harrisonburg keeps making the best places to retire lists.

Attended a theatre production here written and produced by a local artist. Enjoyed the performance. The theatre is cute, seats are comfortable and it accommodates a fairly large gathering.

Best venue for art films and mostly local music fare. Intimate theater.Family atmosphere among patrons and staff. Want to make this intimate and convenient theater work. Movies shown lack a theme and are not organized a series of coherent festivals. Needs strong leadership and creative programming. Undistinguished in current form

I've never seen a "bad" movie at CST, but the uncomfortable seats take getting used to. Maybe it's time to have them replaced?

We love CST so much that we volunteer here to help greet patrons and work the "Will Call" table....and there is always a great show at CST. House manager Patrick is a most amicable fellow who works very hard at making sure patrons are well served...the snacks, soft drinks, craft beers and local wines will greet you and all such items are permitted in the theater...it';s nice laid back touch of true Virginia hospitality.
Tickets are available on line at Vendini for all productions or at the door, too.

Tis is a small and intimate theater. Rocking seats are big and comfortable. the proxminity to the stage is perfect for those up close and personal stage scenes. beverages and snacks are available. the shows cost vary but are very reasonable for the quality of the performance. A must do in downtown Harrisonburg.

I am a "local" to Harrisonburg, and this theater is one of our sweetest treasures. I think the entertainment selections are great with a variety of performances for every one...and movies that have depth-appeal ... something not always common in the mainstream theaters. Court Square Theater also has a variety of snacks and beverages to enjoy! It's a hometown hit!

There is no bad seat in the house because this is a small venue. You can see live shows and movies here. It is right on Court Square with lots of interesting places nearby for dinner and drinks.
